Skip Counting Reggae Man
Children's Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
David Burba


This song is available on Music Movement & Magination's ABC's & Much More

Skip Counting Song in English for ESL-EFL-ESOL Students

LYRICS: MOVEMENTS:

Hey Ron, could you come help me with this song?
I am going to teach the children how to do skip counting.
Here is how it goes.  
                                  

 

Have the children sit with legs
criss-crossed in a big circle and
sway side to side with the beat.

Sometimes when we’re counting,
We don’t count by one’s.
We use other numbers,
‘Cause it’s fast and it’s fun!
If we want to count all the eyes in the room,
We can line up the children and count by two’s.

  At the end of each group of 10,
reverse the direction of marching.
Reggae man says:
2, 4, 6, 8,
10, 12, 14,
16, 18, & 20


2, 4, 6, 8,
10, 12, 14,
16, 18, & 20


Clap hands with each number
while counting/singing with the numbers.

If we want to count all the straws on the table......

Sway side to side with the beat.
Reggae man says: 5, 10, 15,.....

Hands slap thighs with each number
while counting/singing with the numbers.
If we want to count all the fingers in the class.....

Sway side to side with the beat.
Reggae man says: 10, 20, 30, 40,.....


While seated, stomp both feet
(or 10 toes) with each number while
counting/singing with the numbers.
